Final Proposal Regarding Your Discourse Community 200 points 5-6+ Body Pages Due before 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 30 (the link for this assignment closes at 11:59 p.m., so please make sure to submit your work well before this time) Write a proposal for a specific discourse community. A discourse community is a group of people who use specific actions and language to interact with each other and accomplish goals, such as accountants, surgeons, skateboarders, athletes, English professors, biologists, chemists, members of a fantasy football league, YouTube makeup gurus who interact with each other and their fans, and others. Use the following to identify a discourse community: Discourse communities practice share common goals; They use specific ways of exchanging information (social media, publications, email listservs, other ways); They use ways of meeting to discuss how they pursue their goals and conduct business (conferences, seminars, conventions, other ways); They use specific genres to write and communicate (accountants use spreadsheets and cost-analysis documents; skateboarders film and distribute videos composed in a specific way; biologists write lab reports and publish academic articles; etc.); They use specialized vocabulary and language to communicate with members; and master members train novices/new members. You can start a business; propose an event; propose the creation of an app or videogame; create a new product; or something else intended for your discourse community. Identify your reader (investors, leaders of the discourse community, other?) and work to persuade why this proposal will work well and how it will benefit your audience. You will examine the identity of the individual member of the group and discourse community to understand how to engage these consumers. Then discuss your proposal and how it will engage your target audience (members of the discourse community). Please provide a Title Page, the Body of the proposal (contains the different sections), and a References (APA format) or Works Cited (MLA format) page. Please place the page number centered at the bottom of each page. Use business block format with single spacing to write this document. Sections Introduction: opening paragraph; introduces your discourse community, its members, your proposal, and overall purpose. Please select a discourse community that interests you. Individual Member of the Discourse Community: write Individual Member of the Discourse Community for the heading; this section focuses on the individual identity of members of this group (skateboarders, gamers, YouTube makeup gurus, etc.). Examine the identity of the individual to help your reader understand this target audience. Write several paragraphs (three-four) discussing this individual identity. Incorporate your research in this section. Discourse Community: write Discourse Community for the heading; this section will use multiple paragraphs (four-five) to discuss the larger discourse community. This section also aids your reader in understanding the target demographic for the proposal. Incorporate your research in this section. Proposal: State your proposal (write Proposal as the heading). Write your proposal and discuss how you will implement it and why it will work well (multiple paragraphssix-eight). Acknowledge counterarguments readers might suggest (how readers will doubt, disagree with, or question your proposal) or potential problems and how you will respond to these arguments or work with these problems. Incorporate your research in this section. Moving Forward: Discuss how its best to move forward with this proposal and why. Discuss how to implement it and why this form of implementation will work well. Tell the reader why we must implement this proposal. Write multiple paragraphs as needed. References (APA) or Works Cited (MLA): Separate, last page of this document. List the sources you use here in APA format (References) or MLA format (Works Cited). Incorporate your research throughout your paper (use research to support each section). Find sources to support your discussion of the Individual Identity section, Discourse Community section, and the Proposal section; the sources do not need to speak explicitly about each section; they can provide support by speaking to the theme or topic of the section. How do your sources represent your discourse community? Why? How have other organizations or people discussed these ideas or implemented your proposal plans (if applicable)? How do your sources discuss this topic/proposal? The proposal requires you to use at least four outside sources (you can use more). Use two scholarly/academic journal articles from the Pfau library databases (EBSCOHost, JSTOR, Elsevier, Project Muse Premium, SAGE, Science Direct, other databases), and find two more non-scholarly sources (ProQuest, EBSCOHost, news articles, U.S. Census Data, etc.). Use these sources to support your proposal and ideas; do not let these sources overrun your thinking or writing. Please use APA or MLA citation practices to write in-text citations and cite your sources at the end (Works Cited or References page), and DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! Plagiarism is using the ideas or content of others without acknowledging the original source/author. The Purdue OWL website (http://owl.purdue.english.edu/owl) is an excellent source for citing your sources in APA or MLA format. If you do plagiarize, you will fail this assignment and this class.
